Your DPI team will be working together in Wachovia and BB&T to synthesize your new learning (TPACK, content area TPACK, selected Web 2.0 tools, etc.) to create a learning artifact for your professional toolbox to bring back to your DPI colleagues and/or to the field.

Learning Outcomes

Participants will be able to:
  • Apply basic concepts associated with technological, pedagogical and content knowledge (TPACK);
  • Reflect on options for utilizing the TPACK framework with staff and constituents at the district, school, and teacher level;
  • Create digital TPACK - centered resources and/or learning activities for use in supporting other NCDPI colleagues or an upcoming PD/capacity building opportunity.

I. TK, TCK, TPK Support Centers (15 minutes)

TK, TPK, TCK Support Centers will be running concurrently so that members of your team can drop in, as needed, to get "just in time" help based on the nature of your need.

Here is a quick primer:
  • Need help with a Web 2.0 tool..go to the TK Room
  • Need help thinking about using Web 2.0 tool with specific content area....go to TCK Room
  • Need help with the best way to teach with tool in a given content area...go to TPK Room.
  • See http://bit.ly/IvQIDZ for a VISUAL on how to select the room that is right for you.

II. TPACK Design Studio (90 minutes)

In your team, please decide what to work using the OPTION MENU below:

OPTION 1 | Create a professional learning activity that synthesizes TPACK (TPK, TCK, and/or TK), a selected Web 2.0 tool, and content area that could be leveraged in one of two ways:
  • sharing your new learning with colleagues at DPI; or
  • for use in an upcoming professional learning opportunity in the field.
Here is a Professional Learning Activity Template to guide your thinking: . Also check out the activity ideas outlined in "Examples of Deep-Play Assignments" section starting on page 154 in Deep-Play: Developing TPACK for 21st Century Teachers

OPTION 2 | Develop and map a "way of thinking" that will help your colleagues and/ or educators in the field move to the "sweet spot"of TPACK framework for a given content area, common core standard, and/or lesson.

Here are some template examples/ideas of how you might design your map: Map 1; Map 2; Map 3

Here are some tools that might help you organize and map your thoughts:

OPTION 3 | Outline a set of learning activity assessments that really connect specific digital tools with a specific content area. Many of you began this work in the Re-Pack Your TPACK session. Please feel free to continue that work as your artifact for the TPACK Design studio time.

OPTION 4 | Please feel free to continue on work on any current or pending projects. Do consider how you might apply your new TPACK learning to your work in progress.

III. Reflection (as needed)

Screen Shot 2012-08-09 at 7.58.01 PM.png

In your teams, please feel free to use the following questions to guide your thinking as you develop a learning artifact:

  • How does our learning artifact demonstrate your understanding of the concepts learned throughout the TPACK Extravaganza?
  • What resources and technology from the TPACK Extravaganza are we using to enhance our learning artifact?
  • How does our learning artifact elevate TPACK understanding for it's intended audience?

IV. Conclusion

From 3 to 4 this afternoon, during the Reflection and Share Session, you will be voluntarily sharing your learning artifact. Please consider what and how your team might share out your learning artifact.
